Is it okay to ask for an interview to be pushed back a few days? Client work is crazy. Not sure how bad this looks.

I’d suggest to make the time.

The people interviewing you are incredibly busy as well and some likely busier than you.

If it’s a health issue, of course ask to reschedule. Otherwise, go through with it.

I would keep the interview.

There’s literally no way to know. Probably it’s fine. Maybe it’s a bad look. Maybe it ends your candidacy. You have literally zero visibility from the outside.

Dont move. You run the risk of them picking someone else because theyre going to keep interviewing in the meantime.

If you really have to, maybe spin it as ‘I have to put my current client first. They are the priority, as they would be in the future’ but ultimately it is not a great look. That would be damage control only.

Hi all, I need your help - I work in a bank as a product manager, 3 YOE and I want to move to Tech companies (I.e. Google) as a product manager.

This year I have not got any interview from FAANG (I don’t know why…) but got two offers from Consultancy.
1. Digital Product owner (80% focusing on financial industry)
2. Digital strategy consultant ( 50% focusing on high tech industry) but my worry is that this would be more strategy work

Which one should I choose that can get me into Tech?

I’m currently making 83K at AFS. 2.5 YOE. I’m interviewing with Deloitte GPS for a consultant level position and the recruiter mentioned 80K-90K for base salary. I don’t hate my role at AFS, I just want to leave to get more experience and money. I don’t think it makes sense to leave for anything less than 97K. Should I follow through with the interview for this role? Is there a chance Deloitte GPS would offer 97K-100K for the consultant level? This is for a Human Capital Consultant role btw
